4:00pm
are looking for a feature story to do on someone. david has already suggested he go to the middle east. i'm going to ask lou, we need some help with homelessness and i wonder if you are ready for that task. oor there is literally thousands of people that interacted with city hall to make sure we address the housing labor issues, the transit issue, the neighborhood issues. we can go on and on but this deal wouldn't have been put together without all of your input. let me flush out other issues. first of all this is going to be 50 percent
4:01pm
larger and a cathedral hill that will be smaller in addition to the health care innovation fund and issues around how we deal with cost limitations. we do have significant provisions about the future of the charity care. in the original development agreement that we were discussing many months ago, there was a dollar commitment to that charity care in this agreement we are taking a comparable commitment of the number of charity care patients per year that will be taken care of, approximately 30,000 a year which is a better way to measure the charity care than the obama care coming down the pike. there is a hundred new lives they will take care of including 1500 that will come
4:02pm
in the tenderloin neighborhood. another topic that has been around is local hiring and work force training, i know my friend from the building trade, cpmc will continue to hire for jobs from san francisco. but in addition to that we have improved the provisions for permanent entry level jobs. initially there were several jobs we were committing to, we have agreed to 40 percent of new entry level permanent jobs will come from san francisco. these will come from residents from real working class
4:03pm
neighborhoods, the southeast neighborhood, sonoma, tend lions and also the work force training to $4 million. le me talk about transportation the intersection at the site. there were a lot of questions about potential 28,000 new car trips to that sight. let me say a couple things, obviously with the hospital half the size, that is less congestion to the area. the parking garage is about 200 parking spots smaller there will be $14 million to
4:04pm
provide transit. other pedestrian safety and transit i am improvements that we need in the neighborhood. in addition to that i want to thank cpmc to help manage traffic congestion and more policies to use clipper card. this afternoon at the board of supervisors we will be introducing 10-page single space that lays this out. i first want to thank all of you to make sure this becomes a reality. thank you. [ applause ] >> thank you, david. the next speaker that i would like to introduce is warren browner
4:05pm
the ceo of cpmc and be at the stable for the last few months. i believe he suffered fatigue and is worried at times but kept himself together and represented c p m c well with a vision and thought process for the common good for the patients of cpmc and tomorrow and would like to thank him for bringing this all to a conclusion. i present to you warren browner. >> thanks, well, as you heard, i'm the c o. i would like to say welcome. let me tell you that what you thought was
4:06pm
fatigue was actually walking pneumonia which i'm slowly getting better. my grandmother would have called it a chest cold but modern technology substantiated more serious that that. i want to thank all who came and our colleagues who have been supporting this project from the very beginning. [ applause ] two members of the board of west bay hospitals. bishop mark andres and everyone who has been incredibly supportive of everything we have done and without whom this deal would not have happened. he's the one that has the deal on his
4:07pm
computer. for those of you who know how word document works, he's done 99 percent of it. and lou gerardo, his respect and love for the city of san francisco made this all happen. i want to make, really my comments are mostly addressed to the group of us who sat around the table and it's a 3 word sentence. we showed sif fuss. there were many times when it looks like we were pushing an incredibly heavy rock up and even steeper hill and we would never get to the summit and we are here and delighted to be and very much looking forward to the final
4:08pm
step of going through the board and putting shovels in the ground we hope sometime in 2013. again, thank you all for coming, thank you for supporting cpmc and our vision to build 2 new hospitals in this wonderful city of san francisco. thank you. [ applause ] >> thank you. warren. i would like to introduce barbara garcia the director of public health who has been counseling us through this process and answering questions and providing us with staff and expertise and help us understand what we were learning. barbara garcia. >> good morning. this is a very exciting time for the department of public health. i want to give thank yous to
4:09pm
mayor lee and i also want to thank our health commission in 2008 they laid out a policy and became the foundation today. in fact my second week on-the-job campaign to us came to work on this issue and the last two years, our staff and our policy director, mark who is our capital consultant along with our cfo has provided a lot to the team. it does take a large community effort to do this. i worked closely with the community as well. i want to acknowledge bob through this crowd here and as well as paul kumar. they led that charge for us and i really appreciate the work. we are having an incredible agreement today. two
4:10pm
seismically safe hospitals and that's really important. we are in the midst of rebuilding san francisco hospital and i know how important it is to have safe hospitals. some of the important community benefits from this process, but i would like to especially acknowledge warren browner from cpmc, judy lee and michael, we are also working on a lot of projects because of this initial process. again the supervisors coming in and lou to finalize this process made it all happen. we should be very proud. there are 30,000 individual when health care reform happens and they qualify for health insurance and this will be a new and safe hospital. thank you so much on behalf of all.

4:14pm
can really compliment the downtown moscone. the neighborhoods i enjoy just as much because the neighborhood are constantly working to find ways to improve. i'm glad to see public works that helps get the permits done for those parks that have been here for 26 years and having funny; right? >> and that's at the way it should be. we have fun where we live and it's always a great investment to have the agencies working together with the neighborhoods association and the community benefit districts to improve and constantly change and improve the streets and uses of the
4:15pm
streets as we try to support our neighbors. this makes our city great. i want to recognize scott wiener and david is working along broadway and trying to create the newest and freshest districts there. we call it the entertainment district. but getting the businesses up there a little bit better organized so they can welcome the foot traffic and the be automobiles. this is happening all over the districts. it's happening in the valley and others. we have a number of
4:16pm
representatives here dan weaver. every time there are those cb ds that are created there's instant on, on going improvements. those improvements are readily felt with our police department as well. when i have people actively engaged in people with the streets people are a lot more conscious and they're looking at out and supporting this project. people are relynn themselves with the neighborhood. this makes our city great.
4:17pm
i'm here to thank the people and most importantly it is the move that the local merchants have and they want the city to invest in their neighborhoods. it's a plea for success. who won't want to be here. it's better than the east coast right now. as we showed off pebble beach and my daughter is saying she wishes here here. i know that supervisor wiener and intent on making sure we
4:18pm
have the investments in our neighborhood. when we do that kind of investment we get so much in return. people make their own personal investments and we're going to have a lot tighter city. and especially for all the national events we sponsor. we have a lot more people coming on market street they're going to expand on admission mission. we have businesses that wish to establish the cb d. and, of course, we have the moscone strict because they're going to have a way to finance
4:19pm
the expansion. i want to thank everyone and recommit to our cities budget and make sure our neighborhoods and city is going to continue to improve. thank you >> when you have active communities you have active leadership and there's nobody that has been as strong as our districts supervisor scott wiener. >> thank you, mr. mayor. and wanting chu for being here today. i have the honor of representing this valley at the board of supervisors. i want to start with a shout out
4:20pm
to t to the noah valley leadership who have done so much to improve this commercial door demeanor. and this park and two of the earlier park i always tell people if you're considering putting in a park go to see our cities parks it's exactly what we need. i know we're going to make this corridor better as we get money from prop b. so, i have the good future of having two of the very best cd vs in my district.
4:21pm
and when you are a member of the board of supervisors and you're responsible for helping our neighborhoods safer it's a huge benefit to have the cv ds you have people in the neighborhood cleaning it helping to keep it safe and who notice things that might be going wrong before it gets to a breaking point you've got people always there. i'm lucky to have those individuals helping me. it's important in this day and age we know that public budget isn't was it used to be. the department of public works
4:22pm
are able to do a lot of works cleaning but there are limits to what they can do with their resources. we try to get more cleaning resources for p w and we're going to try to continue to do that but it makes it an essential part of the u equation to have people partnering with our city agencies to make sure that our neighborhoods will save. certainly we have it in noah valley in large part to our districts. we need to keep supporting them and making them stronger and stronger and you have my commitment. thank you >> up next in our program is president chiu and is very
4:23pm
excited about the process here. so president chiu >> good morning it is great to be here in the sun and with you're very efficient scott wiener. i want to thank the mayor and i have to tell you in the very first year i was exposed to how for this is. i was asked to triple the size of this one district in my first term in union square. supervisor wiener said it's very important that he tripled the size of his districts. but in my districts i have the
4:24pm
motorbike man's wharf and we've got make sure that our wharf is safe. i'm happy to announce we're talking about a new you community benefit i'll be proposing along broadway but there have been some serious knsz around pope street and whether the financial districts having should consider a cd v. when you have the private partnership and you have people working with our city police department it's important that all of us who are working it to
4:25pm
make sure that san francisco has the most gem of neighborhoods for the entire word we're trying to chief that >> thank you for helping us. thank you very much >> thank you supervisor. and we know it's comfortable without our community leaders. so, please thank you so much. in our other vp thank you all for coming. i think the original reason for this conference is to tell you in terms of giving you a qualified data. we did a terrific study were what i want to talk to you today
4:26pm
about why the cd vs good but in terms of how we change the environment it's more than just changing the city's atmosphere the real magic is because we do all these things but it changes the feeling people have a of a neighborhood it gives them a great sense of belonging. it's what cv ds are important. i want to thank supervisor wiener and the mayor because the
